Expert Forum on “Responsible Sourcing Driving Sustainable Change”

7-8 December 2023, Prague, Czech Republic

Responsible sourcing is becoming a focal point for industries worldwide in an increasingly interconnected and environmentally conscious age. This shift in perspective asks for a rethink of supply chains by integrating responsibility for safeguarding the planet and fostering societal contributions. 

The Epert Forum provides a platform for exploration and discussion on the future of supply chains within the mining industry. 

The agenda will cover a range of crucial topics, including: 

  • Case studies of sustainable practices in mineral and metal extraction, featuring examples from the Czech raw materials sector 
  • Achieving targeted and cost-effective exploration 
  • Reducing the environmental footprint of mining and processing operations 
  • A European perspective on challenges in the mining and processing sectors regarding carbon emissions 
  • Exploring innovative start-ups across various technical sessions 

Unmatched networking opportunities  

Beyond the discussions and presentations, the forum offers an exceptional networking opportunity for participants, aiming to facilitate impactful exchanges and the creation of partnerships that will strengthen and advance the extend of sustainable value chains. 

Together, we can advance responsible sourcing.

Join the Expert Forum to accelerate our journey to a sustainable, prosperous future! 

The EIT RawMaterials Expert Forum Series is Europe’s leading raw materials innovation and education exchange that connects stakeholders and actors from various parts of different raw materials value chains. This highly collaborative environment culminates in producing radically new ways of addressing raw materials sustainability across the supply chains. Tailor made for innovative professionals and industry leaders.


The Expert Forum is where participants, throughout Europe, exchange ideas and opinions about innovations and technologies in the industry and how they can work together with relevant actors to co-create solutions that works for their business.

This year, the Expert Forum Series will include three forums across Europe, each focusing on a specific thematic scope enabling in-depth discussions on some of the most pressing challenges in the raw materials sector addressing topics ranging from the future of solar and hydrogen technologies to the role of education in advancing this transition and much more.

The Expert Forum Series is structured around three strategic frameworks or ‘Lighthouses‘: Responsible Sourcing, Sustainable Materials, and Circular Societies. Each will focus on specific parts of key industrial value chains, i.e., Photovoltaic and Hydrogen Materials, Battery Innovation, and Responsible Sourcing. The purpose of the ‘Lighthouses’, especially when linked together, is to provide the partners of the EIT RawMaterials Innovation Community a clear framework for the debate and – potentially – project design to receive funding via EIT RawMaterials.
